This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
You can’t stop the jokes from coming!
E!'s Fashion Police writers might be in the middle of a heated battle for fair wages and Writers Guild of America recognition, but that isn’t stopping them from cracking the eff up!
And cracking US the eff up, we might add.
The writers might be buried up to their elbows in legal dramz, but they’ve also been quite busy making a HIGHlarious little video about what they’re “really” doing with all this extra time!
We’re rolling on the floor laughing over some of these insane one-liners they came up with upon the NEW claims people are being asked to write Joan Rivers' jokes anonymously and get paid under the table!
Seriously, E! is missing out with these jokesters.
It might be time to give them what they want. They’re CLEARLY worth it!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
